The decade's most triggering comedy
Remember that classic movie “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray? Murray’s character, Phil Connors, is stuck in a time loop and hears the same stories and quotes from his acquaintances day in and day out, ad nauseam.
That’s a bit of what President Joe Biden‘s presidency is like for all Americans. The man just can’t help but repeat the same tired lines, day in and day out.
Wednesday night, Biden again warned that “MAGA Republicans” are threatening democracy. It was a standard rehash of his September 1 speech of the same nature: You’re either with me or you’re against democracy.
On Tuesday, Biden again claimed that his son, Beau, died in Iraq. He didn’t. Beau passed away six years after he left Iraq. Yet the president has made that claim so often that even fact-checkers have labeled it as not true.
Due to his policies that discourage fossil fuel investment, gas prices have skyrocketed and the price of a gas per gallon is currently $1.38 higher than the day Biden took office. His unnecessary spending has also contributed to inflation overall.
Rather than admit his failure, Biden has blamed everybody from Big Oil companies to Republicans to OPEC for expensive fuel and other commodities. The trouble, Biden seems to think, is that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine has put pressure on the industry, thus driving high prices.
The only problem with Biden’s sorry Ukraine excuse is that in the fall of 2021, gas prices were already high.
How could a war that had yet to start be the cause of that economic misery?
Then, of course, there is the litany of bogus tall tales Biden loves to say to gin up empathy and pretend to be in touch with the common man.
If you ask Biden, he went to a historically black college, played varsity college football, taught classes at the University of Pennsylvania, was arrested for protesting civil rights, and used to drive a truck.
None of that is true, but Biden retells those anecdotes every so often.
To really display the lunacy behind Biden’s fables, the popular Twitter account Maze created a must-see video of the president recounting a classic tale of how a former Amtrak employee named Angelo Negri pinched Biden’s cheek and told him he had ridden anywhere between 1 million and 2.5 million miles on the train service.
The only problem is that Negri died in 2014 and retired in 1993. There is no evidence the incident ever occurred, much less evidence to back up Biden’s mileage.

The thing is that Biden started these fibs well before there were any other signs of mental decline. So, to some extent, senility is out of the question.
Yet, Biden seems completely unaware that he has told the stories before and that he has repeatedly been called out for his lies.
Even The New York Times has become critical of the president.
In this scenario, Biden is not the main character of “Groundhog Day,” but one of the side characters completely oblivious to the fact that he has said and done these things before.
The rest of America is Murray, waking up to realize that the country is frozen in time, living the same day over and over again with Biden as president. The only thing different is that we don’t get to reawake each day on Biden’s inauguration day January 21, 2021, when gas was $2.40 and everything was much cheaper.
